Re: repairing old damaged photo

i'm not buying the female bit. looks like a guy to me. he may have a bow on his head, or in back of it, but that doesnt change his gender all of a sudden. i'd take another look. besides, i dont know any women that wear suspenders.

Re: repairing old damaged photo

lol @ Kraellin, she's much too pretty to be male... and I'm old enough to have seen plenty of that type dress in my childhood. It seems that there were always puffy sleeves or attached vests or pleating on the bodice.... a lot of decoration for a kid!

Looks great, Aruna Kamal.

One can spend days on a restoration like this one. I'd say it's finished, except perhaps removing the scotch tape over the bow.

Re: repairing old damaged photo

This is my first restoration. Thanks for the "copy - flip" technique.

Auuuggghhhhhhhh! Do repairs LAST?!?!?!? I have been doing this the HARD way?!?!?! Sigh.

Aruna, if you wish to share your basic workflow, it may help others and give them the opportunity to ask questions.
thanks TommyO, your comments are encouraging. sorry it took me a while to reply. I have been little busy lately. but I will do my best to spend more time on Retouch pro. I have a great interest in this program.
